Wireless WiMAX Network

First Wi-Fi Based WiMAX Wireless Network to be Deployed Across Montreal

JUne 14, 2007

Official project launch planned for September

Montreal, Canada -- Montreal will soon become the first Canadian city to deliver wireless Internet and mobile IP telephony to residents. A new WiMAX based Wi-Fi network is being  deployed across the metropolitan area thanks to a joint venture between two  Quebec-based businesses: independent Internet service provider  and Nomade TÚlÚcom, wireless network installer and operator. Until early 2007, Quebec  lagged behind other major metropolitan areas in entering the era of wireless Internet  access. This will change in September when new wireless services will be made  available first to residents of Montreal's Plateau Mont-Royal neighbourhood. By 2009,  the network will expand to blanket nearly 300 square kilometres of Montreal servicing  approximately 90% of residents. It will provide an affordable alternative to the  oligopoly maintained by companies currently providing telephone, cellular and  Internet service.
The mission of this joint venture is to create an alternative to large Internet service and IP telephony providers by offering quality services at the best possible prices. "For less than $30 per month, Montreal residents will soon be able to have wireless Internet access and IP telephone service almost everywhere on the island," explained Daniel Robichaud, President of "Wireless telephony, including voice mail, call waiting and free local calling will be available across the network with no per minute charge, except in the case of long distance calls," he concluded.

The network has been designed to maintain its stability in the event of any system disruption. "We believe that redundancy is the key to ensuring a reliable, always-on service, something we know from experience our customers need," stated Luc Picard, President of Nomade Telecom.

The network will enable Internet access at speeds of up to 5 Mbps, more than fast enough for most users' needs. This speed, comparable to current offerings from high speed cable and DSL providers, is possible thanks to the WiMAX-powered back-end of the network.

Once deployment across Montreal is complete, the partners will expand their network to the North and South shores of the city. Plans are also in place to develop networks for Quebec City, Halifax, Toronto, Windsor, Winnipeg, Calgary, Edmonton and Vancouver.


The complementary nature of and Nomade make for a perfect fit. Together, the expertise of these two companies will ensure success for the launch and development of citywide wireless networks across Canada. The partnership will also allow the companies to offer independent, secure wireless Internet and telephony networks to both public and private organizations with services such as camera surveillance and utility meter reading and reporting.

A well-known brand in high-speed wireless Internet access, offers subscription management, network access and a solid customer service infrastructure for Nomade. With the technical expertise and experience required to deploy and manage reliable, high-quality and secure wireless networks, Nomade will support the new network's WiMAX back-end and provide the technology required for mobile IP telephony and other advanced services.
